The berenstain bears and too much Yom Tov


Contact Ariela Davis

The first class of the monthly series, "Explorations in Jewish Law" will be on the topic of "Too Much Yom Tov"?

Why do we keep two days in the Diaspora while in Israel, only one day is observed? Why is Rosh Hashana the only holiday that is observed for two days in Israel? What's the difference in the nature of these two holidays and are there other practical differences in Jewish law today?

The "Explorations in Jewish Law" series is meant to be an intellectually-stimulating, text-based and practical class for Men and Women.
